This Street Artist is Painting Fake Shadows and Making People Do Double Takes
If you’re staring at your phone you’ll probably miss them. I mean shadows are everywhere, do you really pay that much attention to them? Artist Damon Belanger was recently commissioned by the business owners of downtown Redwood City, California to inject a little life into the downtown core.
So Belanger, a graphic artist living and working in the San Francisco Bay area, painted 23 shadow artworks all around downtown. There’s no rhyme or reason for their locations, no explanation for who or what the characters are. But if you happen to notice them, you’ll surely do a double take and maybe scratch your head when you realize something isn’t right.
The project was recently selected as a ‘Merit Winner’ at the HOW International Design Awards ‘Signage & Environmental Graphics’ category. If you find yourself in Redwood City, California any time soon, try to find all 23 of them!
So far I have managed to locate 6 from Sifter and bumped into a 7th with no other photo reference than StreetView imagery. (Doubleclick to each placemark brings you into StreetView positions from where the "shadows" -at least their locations- are visible.)
syzygy: For single or a few placemarks coordinates still fine of course!

syzygy: Yup! Sorry everyone for the attachment issue! Hope will be solved soon! Until links to kmz files stored elsewhere is can be a solution...

RaveyThirteen: So... I just tried to add a .kmz of some new finds and saw that nasty error message. Should I just hold onto it til the space issue is sorted?

typsish: As far as I know, it should be foldable. But check the rules of the company you are flying with. They have the specific requirements mentioned in the luggage section. And if the stroller you have now doesn't fit their requirements, check the article on new

diane9247: I don't know what to do about the "space limit" thing. I got a post ready, then couldn't upload the small file. I am losing eyesight, so not sure I can even post anymore! 😵💫(Pinned unfinished post last night, but it didn't save.)

willi1: GE Imagery Date: Yes, I noticed it too. And I thought it was something of an attitude on my part.

SpiderX22: In regards to this error - on my forum posts/threads -> I can start compiling attached files into one kml collection to slim down attachment numbers

SpiderX22: Anyone else notice that new Google Earth imagery doesn't have a date anymore?
